Space Weather News for June 6, 2017
DAYTIME METEOR SHOWER: This week, Earth is passing through a stream of
dusty debris from ... where? No one knows for sure. The encounter is
causing a daytime meteor shower as meteoroids hit the top of Earth's
atmosphere traveling 39 km/s (87,000 mph). A meteor radar in Canada is
tracking strong activity in the constellation Aries not far from the
sun. The display is mostly invisible to the human eye--but not entirely.
It may be possible to see some of these strange meteors during a narrow
window of darkness before sunrise, especially on June 7th when the
shower is expected to peak. Check today's edition of Spaceweather.com
for radar maps and observing tips.
